Thanks for the memories

It’s amazing how time flies. It seems like not that long ago when I waved goodbye to my parents at my dorm, and now, three and a half years later, I am saying goodbye again.

Mixed emotions have captivated me for the entire semester, feelings of anticipation,sadness, worry and thoughts of the future. The day has finally come. I’ve taken my last test, used my last scantron and walked in the communications building for the last time as a student.

This is not the end, however. I know I will in some way be involved with this university in the future. It was too much a part of my life to walk away and turn my back on it. I didn’t just come here to get a degree but to also grow in my life.

I take with me experiences that not many students have cheering at track and crosscountry meets, working in the community with student organizations and spending long days in the “Houstonian” with some of the greatest people I’ve known.

These are all opportunities I received by attending Sam Houston. I am so glad I chose this university, and I hope every student feels the same way.

Looking back, I’m happy I took the path I did. I could have breezed by, but instead I chose to get involved, work hard and never look back. It was all worth it every minute.

I want to say thanks to all the people who helped make these last few years great. That includes Tony, Erika, Heather, Erin, the cross country teams, the “Houstonian,” Circle K International, the BSM and many others. Thank you so much for everything. It may not have seemed like anything big at the time, but in retrospect it really was everything.

Thanks for the memories. Go Kats!
